    Microsoft named their Windows 8 Tablets as Surface. There are two flavors: pepper and salt. No. No. Pepper and salt are not right. The flavors are [insert weird names] Surface with Windows RT and Surface Pro with Windows 8 Pro.

    For those of you who get lost in names, here are some bullet points to help.

    Surface for Windows RT tablet
    • Processor: NVIDIA Tegra-based ARM chip
    • Weight: 676 grams
    • Thickness: 9.3 millimeters
    • Display: 10.6-inch ClearType HD capacitive touchpanel
    • Battery: 31.5Wh
    • I/O: microSD, USB 2.0, Micro HD Video, 2x2 MIMO antennae
    • Software: Windows RT + Office Home & Student 2013 RT
    • Accessories: Touch Cover, Type Cover, VaporMg Case & Stand

    • Pricing: To be determined
    Surface for Windows 8 Pro tablet
    • Processor: Intel Core i5 (Ivy Bridge)
    • Weight: 903 grams
    • Thickness: 13.5 millimeters
    • Display: 10.6-inch ClearType Full HD (1080p) capacitive touchpanel

    Maybe that doesn't help the TLA issue [Three letter acronym] but you can memorize the bullet points and talk to your friends as if you know what the differences are between the two flavors.

    Seriously, though, it all comes down to the hardware. They both will look the same: Ugly. No. No. They'll look great sitting in your closet.

    For those of you who will be happy to admit you purchased a Windows 8 tablet - I mean SURFACE - then you will definitely want to take it with you at all times. Be proud.

    For those of you who are ticked - why the heck didn't they put in the Intel i7? - Chill. It'll happen eventually.
